All Purpose Citrus Vinegar Cleaner - Clean Your Home Naturally

Vinegar can be used as an all purpose cleaner. If you can get past the scent! Here's how I freshen up the vinegar with a little citrus!
Add the peel from an orange, lime or grapefruit to a jar.
Pour 3 cups of white vinegar in to the jar filled with citrus peels.
Now just seal and store for 2 weeks.
Strain and pour 1 cup of the vinegar mixture in a spray bottle.
Finishing filling with water.
Clean until your hearts content.
Here's a two-for tip: 1. To remove odors from a room just pour some in an open bowl, after about 12 hours pour down the drain. 2. Pour it down the disposal drain, wait an hour and flush with water, great for freshen the disposal!

    Have you ever tried the de-scented (unscented?)vinegar? It's usually in the hardware store, not the grocery..

    I have made this and it is ready to use. My question is what size spray bottle do you use for the 1 cup mix. Or is there a formula such as 2 water to 1 mix?

    is there something wrong with lemon peel?
    you mention orange, lime and grapefruit, with no mention of other citrus.
    thought citrus was citrus, all more or less the same.
